Parsonage is an English word for the residence of a clergy member. Three successive reverends and their families lived here from 1843 until Port Arthur closed in 1877. One of them, Reverend Eastman, died upstairs in 1870. Ever since, his spirit has haunted this house. His frequent apparitions from beyond his grave at the Isle of the Dead is only one of many spooky tales and paranormal activities that will tingle your spine during a nighttime, 90 minute Port Arthur Ghost Tour. Follow the guide’s lantern if you dare. During the early 20th century, this refurbished building was used by the Carnarvon Post Office.
